9.4 MANAGING DESIGN VERSIONS USING BLASTIQ

Throughout the blast process there can be many design changes. Some of these changes are
updates to the design due to real life data provided by the parts of the BlastIQ system, other
updates are refinements to the design: trying different things to achieve a better outcome from
the blast design. In order to ensure that the latest blast design file is being worked on, it should
be downloaded from BlastIQ each time, and uploaded after it has been worked on, to ensure
that any changes are available for the next user. It will automatically include any changes made
by any part of the BlastIQ system; if a hole has been dipped etc, that new information will be
incorporated into the latest design file.
The version number will be incremented each time the file is uploaded to BlastIQ. It will also
record who uploaded it and when. Each of the previous files are also available for downloading,
if required, from BlastIQ.
Listed below are the current stages that the blast design goes through during its life cycle.

9.4.1 Hole States
